Urgent Prayer Request!

I just found out today that my beautiful bride, Jamie, needs an MRI next Thursday, to determine if a group of abnormal cells, (found during her last mammogram), is cancer or not! Please pray for my family and especially Jamie!

Any Ideas on How to Get Rid of a Persistant Cough?

I am one of those people that whenever I catch a cold or allergies come around, I get a cough that will not go away. I have been to the Dr. about this on occasion and he cannot find anything wrong. I am thinking of going again, because the constant coughing is making me lose my voice and my throat hurts. Plus, it is embarrassing to always have people know your coming around the corner because they can hear you, or you have to excuse yourself on the phone several times for coughing in some one's ear. The cough I have now, I have had since before Christmas.

Any tips on getting rid of a cough? In case you didn't know I am taking medication for High Blood Pressure and some medicines may react. Help me Please!

Building a Debt Snowball

In this New Year of hope, my wife, Jamie, and I are planning on doing some serious paying off of debts. Using principals set aside from the Bible, Dave Ramsey and other financial resources, we are creating and rolling out a debt snowball.

We only have 6 entities with whom we have debts with. We plan on starting with the lowest debt and paying a specific amount in addition to every monthly payment until this debt is paid off. Then we will add the "extra" money, along with the payment amount from the lowest debt to the monthly payment of the next lowest debt. By doing this, Jamie and I hope to be totally debt free within 10 years. This is provided no other debts are added.

How cool is that?; to have your home, vehicles, & student loans paid off! We can then save more money for retirement, vacations and other emergencies in large chunks.

God Bless us on our new endeavour!
